    1. Trey: Thanks for everything you do. Your music has been the soundtrack to my life for almost 20 years running, and now my kids run around the house dancing like crazy to ‘Sparkle’. I hope this fantastical journey never has to end.

  2. Trey, I’m 67 and my son turned me on to you and Phish several years ago. I have become such a big Phan. My ipod is full of Phish and TAB w/ DL’s from Live PHish. We traveled to Portsmouth for the 2 shows this year. Had a blast. I bought Traveler and I love it. I represent a new Phan group-‘Old Phat Guys Phor Phish and TAB” memberships being accepted. Rock on my man.
